Big boobs, thighs, and butt can make a girl with a tall frame weigh more than an average guy of the same height, and those certainly wouldn't be turnoffs. Being beautiful certainly doesn't hurt the cause either. In all honestly, I'd never give a girl over 6ft serious consideration if she was just average in the looks department.
Which is interesting, because 185 lbs for a woman of my height is within the 'normal' weight range according to BMI. I do have big thighs (which I love ) and a larger chest (which I'm meh about) and my ribcage is quite a bit deeper than normal. I actually have increased lung capacity because of it and my Dr. told me I'd probably make an excellent swimmer because of how tall I am and how large my lungs are.

It all comes down to being pretty though, it always will.

I don't go by BMI. It's way off. No Rotties applied!

The taller a woman is, the thinner she has to be to 'make up' for it is what I've experienced.
My comment was sort of a joke. I don't need a tall, rail thin woman. I would like a woman with a "normal" body, whatever that is. In other words, just not fat (obese). Most models are underweight, not at a healthy weight and they have major eating disorders because of it. No thank you, don't need to date a woman with those issues.

Of course, you wouldn't want to date me anyway since I don't have tattoos and am a believer.

Precisely I could see a LOT of arguments ..er.. debates in our future

I understand it was just a joke, but it seems to me whenever these types of threads come up (or when I talk to people in person) they always say 'yeah, tall girls are great! Supermodels are tall!'. And that really doesn't help the average tall girl To me, it says 'yeah, you'd be super hot if you were a supermodel, but you're not...so bummer'.

Supermodels don't do you any good when you tie their legs and break them. Watch out for the famous elbow to the ribs as well.

I'm sooooo tiny compared to you!!' I just want to pat them on the head and say 'well sweetie, one day you'll grow up and be a real woman'. Bah.

It was really bad when I went out with my friend who is 7' tall. We actually only go to out of the way places and small dives because of the attention we got when we went out to more crowded places. We couldn't even walk down the street without people making comments and it got old.

See, I don't like it when an entire room stares at me. My husband reminds me of all the women doing anything to be noticed and all I have to do is walk in or walk by. I dread walking to the ladies room alone.

And although I'm rarely asked to pose with people, I do see people trying to sneak pics with their cell phones. (I just asked my husband if this was all in my head and he said no. ) I don't know if they're trying to get photos of the super tall chick or if it's because I'm that much taller than my husband.

And yeah, I hear you about the shorter girls/women. It happened this weekend too...in the ladies room. I'm guaranteed comments if I'm waiting on line for the ladies room and it's a guarantee that I'll silence the line when I walk out of the stall.

Lol. Short girls usually go for tall dudes and short dudes would never go for a tall girl.

It has nothing to do with your height. Many women (especially taller women) don't give a rip about your height.
"I just think I live in a redneck utopia"
You sound extremely interesting to me, so it must be your environment. "I get moo'd at a lot though" That pretty much confirms it.

Yeah...JJ, when do you move? I'm curious to hear if things change for you!
